    Watching the Days Pass

    Since I quit my job 3 months ago, almost everyday has been the same.  I sit at at home alone every night while my partner is at work.  I get increasingly more depressed each day.  I'm too anxious to try to find a new job, but the longer I don't leave the ...

    Monotonous?

    I have all the free time in the world to study but I cannot do it. At all. I have open books in front of me but I have no will to actually look at them. I sit and listen to music and watch t.v. On occasion I even fix my hair. I need to be semi-productive when I have the...
